Museum of Illusions concept was created in Zagreb, Croatia. As I visited the museum in Zagreb I was amazed, thrilled, confused and surprised all at the same time, and thought Viennese would love this!

Lana Rozic personal Vienna insights

Why I like living in Vienna ...

Vienna has the right balance of buzzy and relaxing. There is always something to do, to see, to visit but at the same time you can find those hidden, calm corners where you can just chill and time slows down…

What do you like about the city?

It’s the perfect size of an international capital city where you have everything you need, maybe even more, yet Vienna kept its charm with its architecture, traditional horse‐drawn carriages strolling down the narrow streets, lovely parks and river promenades. Best life tempo for me.
